The RockThe Heyman Hustle website has revealed new details on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's new film, entitled "Pain and Gain," which is directed by Michael Bay. The Hustle site notes the following:

The Rock is currently filming Michael Bay's Pain and Gain, the film that is based on the true story of the "Sun Gym Gang," a pair of bodybuilders named Daniel Lugo and Adrien Doorbal, who led an extortion and kidnapping plot before being arrested. Johnson is playing Paul Doyle, a barman who got caught up in his friend's plans.

"(Michael Bay is) a brilliant, brilliant filmmaker, to be able to take that spirit and engage it in a passion project that he loves," The Rock stated in Las Vegas, "I have had the greatest time playing this character, because the craziest part about this is that every day when I wrap … whether it's 3:00 in the mornin or 6:00 at night … I go home thinking, Jesus Christ, this shit really happened, all this crazy shit happened.'"
